It was confirmed by Google that last week a minor change was made in the newest set of algorithm changes for this year. Of course they are downplaying it as one of the 500 changes that are made yearly to their algorithm. However, for our website, and many of our clients, we have seen some improvements that have put us in better shape in search results than we were before the first major updates hit earlier this year. While all of our content creation and linking techniques were Google friendly, some of our rankings and those of other wrongfully penalized client websites were still struggling to even out.
According to the buzz on the web, and articles about the recent changes like this one from Web Pro News: http://www.webpronews.com/daniweb-claims-110-recovery-from-google-panda-update-2011-07 , the latest update has made big improvements to search rankings for a large number of sites that had been victims of the large Panda updates in April. It gives some of us Webmasters who felt unfairly penalized by the update some hope for a full recovery. I am going to continue keeping my eyes on how these latest changes have affected other websites and companies!
